Wise Words Wednesday 2.22.17

“But even so, every now and then I would feel a violent stab of loneliness. The very water I drink, the very air I breathe, would feel like long, sharp needles. The pages of a book in my hands would take on the threatening metallic gleam of razor blades. I could hear the roots of loneliness creeping through me when the world was hushed at four o’clock in the morning.”

– Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

Loneliness is a common feeling, even when we’re among crowds. It is a crippling emotion that can slowly make you hollow. Although, there is no one solution for this. Finding your people, your interests and/or confiding in family can help. Otherwise, there is always the internet, where you can find and make good friends. Or channel those feelings into beautiful work. Hoping everyone has someone! Have a great day 🙂
